Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

It's funny because what does "Indian food" mean? An Indian restaurant can represent a single region or multiple regions ... if the latter, there may not be proper representations of the right things (or the cooks might only be accomplished in some of the dishes).
What if we had European restaurants that served schnitzel, lasagna, paella and pate? You couldn't expect it all to be good (and probably none of it would be spectacular).
The best indian food I've had was at the graduation of a Indian friend. All of the ladies in her family contributed to a 20+ dish meal.

You owe it to yourself to hit up Devon and visit Hyderabad House or Khan BBQ. India House is terrible, a downtown mass-feeding operation that churns tourists and businessmen looking for a fast buffet through their doors as a matter of routine.
It's also the site of the singular worst birthday dinner that I've ever attended. Note: Bhabi's Kitchen as referenced in that post isn't the same thing that it once was.
It's almost shameful to be somehow using something as middle-of-the-road as India House as your gold standard from which to gripe about another restaurant. Granted, that makes anything said about the other restaurant that much worse, subjectively.
